DR. PHIL: Welcome to the show Antigone! The people of Thebes have been very interested on how you have been since you passed. So tell us, how are you?
ANTIGONE: Haemon and I have been doing very well since we arrived in Hades, we reunited with the rest of our families and settled in well.
DR. PHIL: I am sure that makes everyone in Thebes happy that you are doing so well. I also bet that they are eager to hear your account of those days before you left Thebes.
ANTIGONE: It started when I heard that my brother was not going to be buried properly I decided it was my responsibility to see to it, just as he would have for me. I knew that there was a great risk involved by if I had not, he would not be here with me now.
Camera shows Polyneices in the audience.
DR. PHIL: It sounds like you made a logical decision to me, but then Creon became angry with your actions. Did you expect Creon to sentence you to death for what you did?
ANTIGONE: I believed that Creon would not have killed me because it would have brought on bad luck to our family, I thought that I would be punished, but not left in a tomb to starve to death.
DR. PHIL: Neither did the rest of Thebes, what happened next?
ANTIGONE: He went against the advice of the people of Thebes and left me in a tomb to starve to death. After they left I decided not to accept the agony and hung myself.

DR. PHIL: Very interesting… When we come back, we have another guest joining us to tell us their account.
